“I’m from Vietnam. I chose ANU because it’s one of the top 20 universities in the world, on par with many top British and American universities. During my time in the Bachelor of International Security Studies, I’ve had my ups and downs, challenges and rewards. Every class’s robust and detailed discussion comes with rigorous self-research on topics. Every essay is the fruit of hard work and long hours of labour.
I’ve taken a minor in Historical International Security because I like history subjects and I think they are essential for an international student like myself to become familiar with Western cultures and their progress of civilisation.
Without the study of history, it would be challenging to make sense of what’s happening today. In the future, I hope to work at a non-government organisation like the United Nations or ASEAN. These organisations are where I can apply the most of my knowledge and findings and actively contribute to peacekeeping.”
